Data and information technology are driving innovation forward in almost every aspect of human enterprise. In a similar fashion, data science today profoundly influences how business is done. Businesses are facing significant challenges on data privacy and security and business users need to be aware of the key challenges and risks.

In acknowledging the trend of above, the Canadian-Chinese Professional Accountants Association Ontario Chapter (CCPAA-ON) is going to hold a Webinar on ethics in data science.

In this webinar, we will explore the following topics:

  • issues and challenges surrounding the collection and analysis of personal information
  • ethical issues such as working with outside parties, advanced analytics, artificial intelligence, the internet of things and big data
  • key considerations in developing data policy, providing guidance to staff and managing risk
